The Indianapolis area will once again have Spanish-language newscasts, courtesy of Comcast. Starting next Monday, the cable company will launch IndyVisionTV to digital cable subscribers at no extra cost.
Tania Lopez reports in the Indianapolis Star that the newscasts and other Spanish-language programming will also be available through Comcast’s video-on-demand service.
IndyVisionTV will fill the void left when Univision’s signal was yanked off WIIH-17 air in December after LIN TV, the owner of the station, decided not to renew the contract with the Spanish-language network.
IndyVisionTV was created by former local Univision news anchor Marco Dominguez, who sought partners and capital to get the project going. Marco will serve as president, co-anchor and general manager. His former Univision co-anchor, Veronica Millán will join him once again at the anchor desk.
